So, as some of you know, I don't have insurance right now. Really great. And I've been having some problems. I don't think it's my UC but maybe you guys would have some insight.
It started with pain on the right side of my groin. I thought it might be a UTI or something. I did have some spotting which is weird for me. This came and went for a while. Then it started being all the time. Sometimes I'd have pain in the area of my right hip. This pain feels twinge-y. Not really a shooting pain or anything. (I've been pooping and farting fine this whole time too.) Now sometimes it is to the right of my navel, a few times above, and on my side and kind of where my gallbladder was. I've pressed everywhere and it doesn't seem to make it worse. However, when I lay on my right side I do feel some pressure. The pain isn't awful but it's all the time. I can't wear tight pants/jeans (unfortunately I have to for work, too).
I will go to the dr if I have to, but I get insurance in March sometime. Mostly I want to put my mind at ease I guess. I've been drinking a lot of water to see if it would help and I can't tell any difference. If I think it's GI, I can call my GI nurse. If not, I can call the regular nurse. If you guys think it's something female specific, then I will make an income-based appointment at PP. Probably any of the nurses would tell me to come in but I'm not made of money! Concentra I could afford, I'm just unsure about lab costs.
